Hacker News is THE destination for web entrepreneurs. The environment is considered to be very tech-geeky, and the general popular is quite bright.
The list of submitted news that you see on their first page are all voted by users. There is also a "new" tab page with all the new submissions. 99% of all the submissions do not make it to the front page.
Also like Reddit, you want to start your link's title with "Show HN: " So your title would be something like "Show HN: Start and build your startup in 60 days". This will just get you more feedback and early adopters.
To be able to get on the front page, you will need:
1. A great headline - put yourself in your customers' shoes and imagine what would excite them the most. What resonates with what they motivates them?
2. Obviously, a good service - Even if you can get them to visit your site, they won't vote on your story if they don't think it's a good one.
3. The right timing (when there are not that many submissions, but a lot of readers/voters) - check here to see when is a good timing to submit: http://hnpickup.appspot.com/ - The graph you want to see is the pickup ratio.
4. Good friends to help you upvote - Do not try to unvote from different accounts. Hacker News tracks where you are (IP), and discounts any duplicate votes made from the same area network.
